Ottawa, March 4 (CINEWS): Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s brother, Alexandre, has petitioned the federal government to once and for all stop all deportation efforts for a suspected terrorist sleeper agent Mohamed Harkat stressing that he was not a threat to public security.
Alexandre “Sacha” Trudeau recently sent a letter to this effect to Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale. Harkat, a former pizza delivery man, was arrested in late 2002 on a security certificate, on the suspicion that he was an al Qaeda operative. Harkat’s lawyers contested the certificate, but the Supreme Court of Canada upheld it in 2014.
Sacha Trudeau has long been an advocate for Harkat, and once put himself forward as a surety for Harkat’s bail application.
